Che Shale to Kilifi - Leg 3

Che Shale to Kilifi - Leg 3

Day 3. Che Shale - Kilifi.   Distance covered 77km. Kited distance 102km. Hours on water 5. 

It was clear from the minute we all sat down for breakfast that everyone was feeling excited about the day ahead. We were finally coming into the stretch of the coastline that most, if not all, of us were fairly familiar with.  A 77km stretch from Che Shale, through Mambrui Bay, Malindi Bay, Maungu, Watamu and onto Kilifi. It’s where the dark, oft murky red soiled water, would transform into the turquoise green lagoons Kenya is so famous for.  The questioned remained however, would the wind gods play ball? In short: no.

With only two months to go, excitement is building among the Lamu to Zanzibar 2017 team. Planning and logistics are being finalised, and training is going well.

As much as the team are looking forward to the challenge of kiting and windsurfing hundreds of kilometres along the coast, the cause for the expedition remains a priority. The team hope to raise awareness and funds to support Marine Education Programmes being run by two Kenyan charities, Local Ocean Trust and the African Billfish Foundation.
